Mike Di Placido’s collection Crow Flight across the Sun, a tribute to Ted Hughes, will be officially launched on Thursday 18th January, 6.30 pm, at York Library, Library Square, Museum Street, York, YO1 7DS. There will also be a guest reading by York poet Carole Bromley. As if that’s not enough, there’ll be wine and nibbles at the bar. Don’t miss all this. Lighten the January darkness.
I can’t remember when I enjoyed a book of poems so much; possibly ‘Season Songs’. Keith Sagar (on Di Placido’s ‘Theatre of Dreams’)
Shrewdly, comically, with Blakean innocence, Mike Di Placido writes about enthusiasm and inspiration: how in practice we read poetry and fall in love with it. Ed Reiss
In these poems Ted comes alive again, he lives and breathes. These poems are healing gifts. Mark Hinchliffe
